It is a 2-DAY Workshop, yet you can decide to book only one of the days and go through only part of the learning process with us. In case you only book DAY 1, your creation will be fired and glazed transparent for you. DAY 1 / 11.11.2017 / 5 to 8:30 pm / HAND-BUILDINGIn the current session you will learn tips and tricks about creating irregular shapes with clay. It will be all about hand-building, so no throwing wheel involved. We will start with a 40 min lecture introducing you to different types of clay, different stages of drying and firing, ways of preparing it and ways of shaping it into a final piece. Then we will get right into practice and get your hands dirty. Each participant will get a chance to create his/her own little vase, shaped according to his or her personal master plan. DAY 2 / 26.11.2017 / 5 to 8:30 pm / GLAZINGThe current session is fully devoted to bringing colour into your ceramic object. There are several colouring techniques in pottery, but in the current session we will fully focus on glazing – covering your object with a combination of chemical elements that turn into glass-like plating after firing. We will start with a 40 min lecture, introducing you to the different techniques and possibilities of glazing. Once all the basic rules are shared, you will get down to glazing your vase according to your desired plan, under an attentive eye of your instructor. At your disposal will be 15+ glazes to play around with.
